WOW!! I hate rain boots, always bulky clunky, these are not like that. I actually love wearing these, they are so comfy, it's crazy, never in my life would I think I'd like my rain boots, I'd actually wear these when its not raining..lol. After about 1 minute if having them in I knew I was keeping them, also like em so much buying the tall pair for an xtra rainy day! They dont hit the front or back of your leg so no red marks, but the footbed part moves with you kinda like a sneaker, i usually get a 9 1/2-10 boot and got these in 9 and theyre perfect with a thick sock even. Didn't we wanna spend $50 BKS for rain boots, but don't mind now after wearing them, well worth it.
